Early Life and Achievements

As you may already know, this Christian vocalist Tauren Wells is skilled in introducing intense feeling, dance-oriented pop, and R&B genres of music in his work. Originally, he got the attention of a lot of gospel devotees as Frontman of the CCM band, Royal Tailor.

He then became a solo artist in 2017 with the Grammy-nominated album, Hills and Valleys.

A native of Battle Creek, Michigan, Wells co-founded this faith-based, dance-pop band with DJ Cox, Jeremy Guzman, and Blake Hubbard. Provident Label Group/Sony Music act came out with two albums over their five-year course: Black & White (2011) and Royal Tailor (2013).

They’ve collected two GRAMMY® nominations & the title of New Artist of the Year from the GMA’s Dove Awards.

However, Wells chose to part ways with the group (Royal Tailor) to pursue a solo career. In 2016, Sony CCM imprint Provident Label Group signed him and he released his very first amazing single, “Love Is Action,” followed by the EP Undefeated.

Wells’ first single, “Love Is Action,” first gained momentum on radio channels with a handful of early ads. The song became a viral sensation, as it debuted at No. 33 on Billboard’s Christian Airplay Chart.

Wells went on to debut his next single, “Undefeated,” which featured Reach Records rapper KB.

The intriguing style and genre of “Undefeated”, gave us only a taste of Wells’ dynamic musical capabilities. While talking about this song, he says, “I’m not trying to be famous or cool for the sake of being cool,” he explains. “I want to say something that impacts people.”

Great songs like “Love Is Action” show that this singer’s personality will always be what makes him popular.

“I have more awareness of who I am, what I want to say, and where I want to go,” Wells shares. “I can’t say that I had that at 22.

I feel provoked to do something and I want it to be multi-dimensional. I want the listener to feel inspired, but also to ask questions. I feel like the music is the runway to taking people somewhere.”

The Prisma Worship Arts School

Moreover, not only has Wells taken up a successful music career in his free time, but he and his life partner, Lorna Wells, have also launched Prisma Worship Arts School.

Prisma, a private music academy with two locations in the Houston area, has grown exponentially in a short time thanks to Tauren’s deserving influence.

The academy has already employed 20 “Dream Coaches” and is teaching 100 students the skills of music and vocal mastery. Even as a young wife and mother, Lorna believed that she should champion the idea: “We said from the beginning that this is a family calling.”

Explaining his reasoning for opening this school, Wells has publicly noted, “I feel called to call greatness out of people…As cliche as it sounds, I want to be the one who challenges people’s low expectations and shows them the limitless opportunities they have in life. We all deserve to live our best lives.

These conflicts meant that we were both going through a lot of emotional distress. But amid the chaos, we decided to fight for our love. We wouldn’t give up because we told ourselves we would work it out and find a way to share our love again.”

Tauren and Lorna have three sons, including Kanaan and Lawson.
